. a compelling message as to why they should throw out barack obama because the economy in ohio is doing better than it is in other parts of the country. >> it is and the question is, who gets the credit ryan joins me now along with roland martin. roland, that was the kind of, you're not afraid to say what you think. a kick in the you know, at least they're saying they feel the way they feel. >> actually, honesty is always the best policy. it's amazing they are making sarah palin out to look like a you know, profit, if you will, when she said they should go rogue. they're going to have to get more aggressive in this campaign in order to close this gap. these debates are going to be critical, but again, these ceo frankly is giving a muddy story if you will as to why he should be the person. i love boxing, erin and they say you don't win the belt of the champion on points. you take it and mitt romney hasn't done that. he has to take it if he wants to win the presidency. >> it makes sense, but ryan, what in the world is he supposed to do? it sounds like he tried to be aggressive. after the attack
the real economy is very important to us. in missouri we have a strong industrial rail process where you have a lot of goods across our state. we have work to improve the system, get rid of bottlenecks. for example, the osage river where we are now in the process of building a bridge that we can get another land we don't have slowdowns. the first step is to make sure we don't get slowdowns so when we look to more possibilities for passenger rail travel, that we have a system to deliver on time. so we're looking at that. we've also worked with illinois because anybody that looks at the bigger picture of our country will see getting the first step from chicago to st. louis is never going to attract the resources for high-speed rail across their state. that's why we worked with the state of the one i and others to get the initial project completed, while at the same time working to improve our network here for on-time efforts. you know, all of that is part of a long-term transportation focus that will continue to provide us a competitive economy. >> dave spence. >> i think it sounds great i
. it is crippling the iranian economy but it hasn't stopped them from getting nuclear weapons. we both agree that is the ultimate goal. the united states has wanted to bring them to the negotiating table. that has not happened, either. the israelis are almost feeling as though both the mentality and the course of actions that the u.s. has taken and the west in general have been naive. >>shepard: factoring in is the fact that so many analysts with great experience and knowledge of the situation here are of the belief that you cannot stop this by bombing. it will take something else. >>reporter: right. that's tech did you want to look at that exact point look at the people of iran and what they are saying. right before mahmoud ahmadinejad got on a plane to come to the u.n. meeting, the people of iran, and i have been on so many blogs and twitter and facebook, where are we going? we have so many problems at home to address. you do not need to go to the u.n. and talk about world problems and reforming of the global community as has been repeated on interviews and the at podium at the u.n. there

to average americans, the economy. let's run this through the spin cycle. i think this is a double-edge sword. on the one hand, this election is about the economy. and regardless of how tempting foreign policy is right now, come election day, voters care most about the economy. that's true i think every year. we know this from 2004. which was supposed to be an election on foreign policy and still exit polls showed most voters cared about the economy. so i think the advisors who want him to stay on message about the economy are right. however, the other side to this, and i guess i'm arguing two points here, the other side to this is, there are areas to exploit. obama's foreign policy has been whitewashed by his defenders and i think there are people on the right in the middle and honest people on the left who would be outraged to hear a little bit more about obama's failed promises. the problem mitt romney is going to have, he has to come at foreign policy from the left and right. that's tricky. from the right, he needs to talk about obama's policy of open hands versus clenched fists, have see
the current state of the election and plenty of people are concerned about the trends and the same economy in these times. most important of them who are the people who will show up to the polls in november. we want to have a follow-up discussion about economics, demographics, and the expectations for 2012. this is a follow-up for what was released in november of last year. with that, i am pleased to introduce my colleagues. the co-authors of the report they are releasing at www.american progress.org. after this presentation, you have a conversation with our panel and we look forward to hearing from you as well. i encourage you to follow the conversation. our guests recent writings include the european paradox and the decline of the working class and the rise of the mass upper-middle-class. he holds a degree in sociology from university of wisconsin, madison. i say about the game yesterday.

about the economy, talking about the deficit, talking about four years of president obama would be detrimental to the country. it's pretty plain and simple. president obama and republican nominee mitt romney are laying low today because they're getting ready to prepare for the debate, so it's the number 2s on the campaign trail. right behind me here, here's paul ryan stumping here in new hampshire, a crucial battleground state. when he's done here, he goes to ohio later today. another very big important battleground state. and that's the whole idea here, as the president and mitt romney get ready for the debate. paul ryan and vice president joe biden are on the campaign trail. specific new hampshire. the race here is kind of close. the most recent poll shows president obama with a five-point advantage over mitt romney. definitely a very close contest here in new hampshire. this is a state that may not know paul ryan very well, but knows mitt romney very well, who was governor of neighboring massachusetts. he owns a vacation home here in new hampshire. spends a lot of time in thi
will not be looking to score a knockout tonight but will instead zero in on the president's handling of the economy. you can say that the romney game plan for tonight can be boiled down into two key phrases. do no harm and live to fight another day. just a few hours before one of the most important nights of his political life, mitt romney walked tough the debate site in denver prepped for his first one-on-one face-off with the president. campaign officials tell cnn romney's game plan tonight is to provide a clear choice, talk about his plan to create jobs and contrast that with the president's performance on the economy. and in a sign of caution, the campaign says romney won't be looking for a knockout punch. one of romney's top surrogates, florida senator marco rubio says that's the right approach. does mitt romney need to score a knockout punch? >> this is not an athletic competition. this is a debate between two money, one that is president and wants to stay there and one that wants to offer a new direction. >> reporter: all day long the romney campaign has signalled it will go after what it s

obama will be there, too. remember, please the economy is at stall speed. unemployment 8%, and foreign policy in the middle east unravelling, little mention in the mainstream media. listen from the obama campaign team in advance of debate campaign spokeswoman, quote, what the american people are looking for is not just a professorial list of facts or accomplishments or even goals. obama has a tendency to give long substantive answers. simply, she is saying the president too smart for the average american. here is the washington examiner's reaction to that quote. worry about obama being too professor professorial to couch-sitting beer drinkers. the polls have him ahead and bill o'reilly is here to talk about the debate and how the media will spin it. all the names at the top of the hour. bill o'reilly. and talking to college student at university of michigan as part of the job creations solutions tour, and responded to the heckler. listen to this. >> this is the-- [crowd boos] . >> usa, usa. >> and that economy 25% of the world gdp. stuart: you want to hear more of his defense of americ
on domestic issues including the economy and jobs. the second debate on the campus of hofstra university. politico has this piece about jim leher. for the first time in the 2012 campaign, the president and mitt romney will face each other in what many consider the most important even between now and november 6. for the 12th time in the history of debates, jim leher has been asked to serve as moderator making him the most experienced a moderator and the modern history, he is uniquely suited according to his contemporary. at a time when the electorate is as divided as ever and wind -- media scrutiny is -- next is hayley. welcome to the program. caller: good morning. thank you for taking my call. i am one of the people who spend every summer for the last few summers going around the nation asking questions. my main question is, what do people think politically and what they are paying attention to. you say are a third party is relevant, yes, they are. they will never get any kind of support as long as the american people are more interested in things like "dancing with the stars." that is a
: the message of the day was not only that he can fix the economy, it's that he can feel it. >> there are so many in our country that are hurting right now. i want to help them. i know what it takes to get an economy going again and creating jobs. >> reporter: the straight from the heart appeal is echoed in a new ad that shows romney looking directly into the camera. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> reporter: translation, pay no attention to the man in that hidden camera video. >> the 47% who are with him, who are dependent on government very much -- >> reporter: but for romney when it rains it pours. his two-day under steady showers has a feel of a race against time. a new poll quinnipiac finds romney trailing the president by ten points in ohio, nine points in florida and 12 in pennsylvania. an abc "the washington post" poll may explain why. 54% said they had an unfavorable view of romney's comments on voters who don't pay taxes. romney told cnn he's not worried about the numbers. >>
of the economy. what we've seen are incomes falling and people have less income due to paying taxes on and getting more he deduction and less tax income liability. ahead of that, too, though, we've seen a lot more complexity introduced into the tax code, we've got deductions, if you fill out your own 1040 how difficult it is if you're not taking the standard deduction, what your tax liability is. this is something coming down the pipe with a romney administration or more republicans in the house and senate we should be be considering when he we're talking about tax reform. stuart: okay, but it is accurate to say that in the obama years, a larger proportion of people are not paying any federal income tax and that the spike occurred in the obama years in part because of obama politics, is that accurate? >> well, the spike has occurred, really, over the past 20 years and i've seen incomes falling and heard the stat over and over again, how we've got personal wealth falling under obama policies and the other thing you need to remember, too, is that under the obama administration, it's n
the immediate future of our economy, and the level of disappointment in barack obama held by obama supporters who will vote for him, but they are still disappointed in him. so those two things alone, i think, are going to result in a jump-ball election. but to the debate tonight, i do think it's going to be important for mitt romney. the reason i think it's going to be important for mitt romney is i think very few of us have an understanding of the ripple effect of the 47% comment that has been reported and reported and reported out there in the country. this is going to be the first time that many americans, most americans, actually, are going to see mitt romney on a stage with the president of the united states, and they're going to have to figure out, well, does he understand us? he said 47% of us, you know, are basically bust-outs. does he really understand my life? this is going to be their shot at getting a peek at that. for that reason and that reason alone, i think this debate is very important for mitt romney. >> can i pick -- >> and i think the debates -- i personally think debates
they both say that they have the answers to try to turn the economy around xshgs it really comes down to appealing to we think about 6% of the electorate right now who hasn't decided who they're going to vote for. of that 6% they live in nine states, including the state that i'm standing in right now. the other states that we're really focussing on as we just talked about, virginia, florida, ohio, it's also nevada, iowa, new hampshire. it's all across the spectrum of who these candidates are trying to reach out to, suzanne. >> and right where you rshgs of course, you mention in colorado nine electoral votes. critical to get them to the magic nm number needed to win. president obama seems to have the advantage in this state, and, of course, the dnc held their convention there back in 2008. how much does it matter to have the hometown advantage, to have the people who are sitting in that audience and perhaps you are ahead in the polls? does it make that much difference in a debate setting? >> well, he certainly has a little bit of a lead right now, according to the latest cnn poll of po
hunt at the u.n.. martha: take a look at the u.s. economy this morning. there is a new report that has some not very good news on this. families are seeing a lot less money in their paychecks according to this new report. it finds the median household income fell by 1.1% to under $51,000 last month. you take a look at the chart on this since 2009 and it is not a pretty picture. it is a significant drop since the president came into office. stuart varney joins me now. he is the host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. stuart, good morning. that's a tough chart. >> yes, it is a tough chart. it paints a picture of real distress in middle america. buying power down, our standard of living falling and hardship, hardship right there in the middle of america is actually give gettingous. -- getting worse. let me give you key number. from the start of the obama administration the median household income in america has fallen, repeat, fallen, down around $4,000. we've not seen this kind of decline over a long period of time, three, four years, we have not seen this before. if you
some statements about the economy already in the opening remarks. so let's start with that. as governor nixon noted, the jobs increased 18,000 nearly from july to august. but the number of people in the civilian labor force, those working unemployed but actively working fell by 11,000 during the same period. so let's start off with this question. do you believe that the economy is improving or lagging behind, and what three specific things would you do to create more jobs and misery. governor nixon, your first. nixon: we are seeing that progress necessary to move forward once the jobs bill got into effect in september of 09 we have had an unemployment rate below the national leverage and today's numbers showing not only this last month gaining 17,900 jobs but also that means the third most new jobs of any state in the country shows we are beginning to make progress and it is built on a solid, solid rock of fiscal discipline, holding the line on taxes, focusing our attention on industries to make a difference. for example, that is why i call the legislature back into the special session
trying to explain why he is pumping even more money into the economy. connell: the supreme court back to work today. whether your cell phone data is protected under the fourth amendment. judge andrew napolitano coming up. dagen: costing apple billionths. connell: let's start with nicole petallides. nicole: looking pretty good here today. we see the dow is up more than 1%. the s&p up nearly 1%. the text -- tech heavy nasdaq up. this was after three months of contraction. that was some good news there. another thing helping things along -- the dollar is lower, the euro is higher. you are seeing just about every name in the dow with an up arrow. i want you to take a book here at macy's. they will higher 80,000 for the seasonal. kohls, amazon, toys "r" us, just to name a few. dagen: host chris wallace had a little trouble getting information from vice presidential candidate paul ryan on his tax plan. >> it is lower by 2013. >> how much does it cost? >> it is revenue neutral. [ talking over each other ] >> we will get to that. >> let me just tell you. it would take me too long to go throug
work. but this is not one of those times. when the federal reserve talks about getting the economy moving by any means necessary it is really talking about getting more data like today's terrific ism number. given that the europeans and chinese are doing the same thing, if you're betting against the market you're fighting major central banks around the world that are doing their best to generate good data and sometimes their best is good enough. why does this overused cliche matter so much? ben bernanke said he's going to continue to buy bonds to keep interest rates down, so that this purchasing manager's number won't be an aberration. when you examine the fundamental of individual stocks, you are playing what's known as the micro. when you take into account the big data numbers like the purchasing manager's index, you're making a macro analysis. again though like the idea of fighting the fed this micro/macro dichotomy might mean nothing to you unless you took ec 101. let's put it in terms that everybody can understand. anyone who's been to a museum or taken an art class knows that

obama. obama does not want to talk about the current economy and his current performance, because he knows under that debate he loses. >> if it's all about -- if it's all about record, can mitt romney run on his record and appeal to those that are the ground base of his own party to come out? >> absolutely. the ground base -- the most important thing not only for his side, but if you look at hispanics and women and a variety of voters, the most important topic they're interested in is the economy. it's the economy. i hate to quote james carville, but it's the economy, stupid, once again. part of why people are focusing on anything but the economy is because economic news is not good. they have not passed a -- any budget much less a balanced budget in years. it is unbelievable. >> quick, because i want to get some sound, but go ahead. >> real quick, this notion that somehow the president and democrats aren't out there talking about the economy is laughable. the problem with the romney campaign is not that they don't talk about the economy. they don't talk about their policies. it's th
system? >> i think that is an important question, especially for our economy. i want to point out one thing. she posed for sequestration and now says it will not happen. can you imagine that kind of leadership? she goes for the fiscal cliff and now she says it will not happen. let's talk about education. this is the problem i see. we have a department of education in washington. they have 3500 employees that make over $100,000 a year. they are dictating to the school district how to do their jobs. i think that is a shame and it is wrong. i am not talking about closing down the department of education. i have never said that and never will. can we reduce the size of that department of education and get that money down to the school district? i believe the best education for children in nevada comes between parents, teachers, and principles. -- principals. those are who should be making the decisions. >> if i could quickly comment. my opponent mentioned my vote on sequestration. just a few questions ago, he said he voted to end medicare by turning it over to private insurance companies
. martha: all right. let's take it back here at home for a minute and talk a little bit about the economy because we've got a lot of new numbers that have come in that are giving us a better read on the health of the u.s. economy. u.s. weekly jobless claims fell by 26,000 to 359 people. fueling a modest improvement in the unemployment picture. while numbers on the gdp are pretty rough. they show that the economy is still indeed very sluggish. and that's where we start with stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. stuart, that gdp number is a downward revision and it is a very rough picture in terms of growth. >> yes. it means that america's economy right now is at stall speed, going nowhere, extremely low rate of growth. think about it, martha. we've come from 4% growth at the end of last year, 2 1/2% growth at the beginning of this year. now we're down to just 1.3% growth. that is it. i think that stall speed for america's economy. less consumer spending, less business investment, in the april through june quarter. i've got another number for you that also c
be an increase in productivity. lori: that was a pretty pathetic segue on my part to talk about the economy. as you know, there was a slew of economic data points released today. generally weak data. gdp and durable goods spell trouble ahead. m is a chief economist at russell and is joining us now. will there be an economic impact? >> hopefully the nfl, as you said, will lead to less productivity at work. getting back to that net positive for the economy. lori: thank you for flying. you had a downward revision. does that cause you to change your outlook? >> no. i view the gdp number being revised, i think that is just in line and reconciling with the last six months. the payroll data has averaged 97,000 jobs a month. that seems more consistent with the 1.3 gdp numbers that we sell today and with the 1.7 we saw previously. i think we are just reconciling accounts here. lori: you are on board with this qe3 that has been so controversial? >> yes. i certainly am. i view qe as a step towards growth targeting. if they have this formal inflation target of 2% now, they certainly want to keep room i
of the economy in all three states. 51% of polled voters say the president would do the better job. >> okay, let's go back to the last slide, guys. and mark halperin, let's talk to you. i know you agree with me that the media is liberal. guess what? republicans have somehow managed to win despite that media liberal bias. you've said it repeatedly on this show. so despite that fact, mitt romney is not getting crushed in all three of these states because of the liberal media bias. what's happening there, and why is he losing so badly, especially in ohio? >> well, it's very unlikely the president will win those states by those margins, but these numbers are not out of line dramatically with private polling and some other public polling. i think the biggest problem right now remains him. he's not driving a consistent message. the president does -- says something, the republicans get all excited about it. they treat it like a gaffe. they'll talk about it for a day. and then they'll move on to something else. the biggest danger to me right now for the republican party are two things. one is that you l
, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. if you've had enough, ask your dermatologist about enbrel. >>> the economy is one of the biggest issues for voters this year. so, cnn money asked 17 experts and the question they posed was this. who would be better for the economy, mitt romney, would it be barack obama. let's bring in alison kosik. she has the answers. s she's standing by for me at the new york stock exchange. they said who? >> they reluctantly said, brooke, romney. romney would be better for the economy. here's what's sad about this survey that cnn money did, these economists weren't excited about either one of them when asked who would be better for the economy. they asked 17 economists. nine picked romney three picked obama. the math doesn't add up because five couldn't commit to anybody because they said it didn't matter. they couldn't figure out who would fix the economy on their own. they just weren't enthusiastic about one candidate or the other. >> but, you and weir jui were t last week, alison, we learned president obama is a job creator. why isn't that helping him with the economis
